TAG (Twin Axis Gear) Fit System
Optimized lightweight webbing, buckles, and cam-lock adjustment levers
Twin Axis Gear (TAG) Fit System:
Bell's next generation Twin Axis Gear (TAG) fit system adjusts to the head on two axes - circumferentially as standard fit systems do, but also vertically to better accommodate differences in the up/down position of the occipital lobe. For added comfort we've co-molded the system arms with soft rubber and positioned them higher to better accommodate eye wear. The result is the most adjustable, comfortable and easy-to-fit system ever.
Specifically designed ventilation channels on the interior of the helmet's liner bring cool air in through the front, pass it over the head and flushes warm air out of the rear ports. You'll find some form of this feature on almost all Bell helmets, but the Gage features deeply sculpted channels that keep air moving whether your bombing it at 30 mph or huffing it uphill at single digit speed.
Antimicrobial X-Static Padding:
Woven with real silver fibers, X-Static Padding is a quick-drying and anti-microbial material that inhibits growth of odor-causing bacteria and fungi while keeping your cooler than standard pads.
Lightweight Internal Reinforcement:
In order to maximize venting and minimize bulk, the Gage features internal reinforcement structures. These composite skeletons fortify helmets the same way rebar makes concrete stronger, allowing for bigger vents, more advanced styling and lighter weight, while still meeting stringent safety standards.
Fusion In-mold Microshell:
In-molding is the process of bonding the helmet's Microshell to the EPS foam layer to provide a sturdier, more solid helmet. The EPS foam is shot into the thin Microshell cap when it's in the mold - thus the name - rather than formed separately and taped on later. This process was pioneered by Bell and is the industry standard for all high-end helmets.
